Praise for our speech writers
As you might imagine, our clients are never left speechless. Here are a few nice things they have to say our professional speech writers. (Read more testimonials here.)
Aaron – satisfied best man from California
Thanks for helping to organize my thoughts and put them on paper. … Thanks again for all your help. While I had an idea for what I wanted to express, your help in getting it structured was a big help.
Mike – satisfied best man from Illinois
This is great, David. I love the narrative and how you tied everything together. I’m really happy with how it turned out!
Mark – satisfied best man from Virginia
This sounds awesome! I really like the improvements you have made. I’m going to practice reading it a few times and see if anything needs to be tweaked.
Dan – satisfied best man from Arizona
This is an excellent draft. I think anything that I would like changed would have to come from me at this point in order to make the speech my own. I want to thank you again for your efforts and for helping me be more confident in the speech I will be giving.
You will have some fantastic words to say – both at your next speech, and when it’s over.

You hire a best man speech ghostwriter because you don’t know where to start.
This might be the most common reason to hire a best man wedding speechwriter. You’ve never given a speech, and there is so much to talk about. But you can’t think of anything, or you just don’t know where to start.
That’s not a problem. Give us the information we need, and we’ll know where to start. We have questions for you, as you will see below. Answer the questions, and we’ll get started on a custom wedding speech that is personal, authentic and as humorous or emotional as you want it to be.
You hire a professional best man speechwriter because you don’t want a canned speech.
You could just deliver a canned speech from the Internet. But that’s no way to honor the bride or the groom. You want your moment in the spotlight to be a personal message to the people you love.
When you hire a best man wedding speech ghostwriter, your speech is written from scratch. It’s personal and authentic, a moment the happy couple will treasure forever.
You hire a good best man speech writer because you are not comfortable with speaking.
Most people, including groomsmen, are not all that comfortable speaking. It’s OK to be shy, but when you are asked to be the best man , you might not have a choice. And when you are the father of the groom or the father of the bride, it’s hard to decline a request to say a few words.
When people are shy to speak, they are often also uncomfortable drafting their speech. That’s when hiring a wedding speechwriter makes sense. A well-written best man speech or father of the bride speech gives you confidence to deliver the speech — to do the speaking.
You hire a best man speechwriter because you are too close to the subject.
Some people have a hard time talking about people they are close to, even themselves. Job interviews become challenging when the spotlight is on them. Best man speeches and father of the groom speeches are challenges for the same reason.
What do I say?
What do I leave out?
How do I know this is really a good best man speech?
Why is it so easy to talk with friends about sports or recipes or the movie you saw last night, but so hard to find the words to speak about a person you care for?
Hiring a wedding speech ghostwriter is a smart strategy to help find the right words, to choose what works well in a speech and what doesn’t.
You hire a best man speech writing service because you want to deliver the best speech possible.
Not everybody is shy or struggling to find the words. Some people could actually draft a fairly good best man speech themselves. But they want better. They want an expert to help polish the words or build on their thoughts.
That is the real value in seeking best man speech help from a writing service like ours. We are happy to help you reach a higher level.

How to work with a best man speechwriter
Working with a best man wedding speech ghostwriter is pretty easy. You supply the information, they do all the work. You ask for revisions…and they do all the work again. Writing a good best man speech or a maid-of-honor speech couldn’t be easier.

Think about the qualities of the bride or groom.
This speech is about the bride or groom…or both. It’s about who they are so far and who they will be in the future. This is a major life moment. It calls for a true look into what makes them who they are.
That means values and personality.
Everything we do is based on our values and personality, fundamental qualities that transcend events and moments. A good best man speech will reflect those qualities.
Think about the best stories about the bride or groom.
What makes life interesting are those funny moments, or those moments of courage. These little stories cast a light on the bride or groom and help us know them better and relate to them better. The perfect best man speech is built on stories.
One of the keys to working with a best man speech writing service is to dig deep for those stories. Never mind about how you word it; your ghostwriter will find the words for you.
Decide how you want to handle humor.
Humor is a tricky thing. Not everybody can pull it off. And not everybody can pull off all kinds of humor. Before you find a best man speechwriter, decide how you want to handle humor.
Answer all our questions.
We have some questions for you. The more completely you answer them, the better. Most people are very good at answering the questions about the people. But they often skimp on the anecdotes. Five or six anecdotes are best. That way, there surely will be two or three that fit nicely into the speech. Sometimes we’ll use more.
Here are the questions we ask before writing a best man speech. If we are writing a maid-of-honor speech, some of the questions will change a bit. Same thing when writing father of the bride speeches or father of the groom speeches. And we ask slightly different questions if this is an LGBTQ wedding. But these questions will give you an idea:
What does a best man speech writer need to know from me?
- How do you know the groom?
- How well do you know the groom’s family?
- How well do you know the bride? Her family?
- Are there other people you really should mention in the speech?
- What personal anecdotes that you really want to mention?
- How is the groom’s life about to change?
- Are there any cultural or family sensitivities you should avoid?
- What personal advice do you wish to share with the couple?
- What is your comfort level with humor? What style of humor?
- Anything else your speechwriter should know?
The most important question for writing a good best man speech is question #5. That really is the meat of most wedding speeches.
